“Arsenal shouldn’t have announced signing of Declan Rice with Odumodublvck’s song ” — Daniel Regha

Controversial Twitter critic, Daniel Regha faults the English professional football club, Arsenal for announcing the signing of its new player, Declan Rice with Nigerian Odumodublvck’s song.

On the 15th of July 2023, Arsenal via its official social media pages announced the signing of the 24-year-old player following his exit from West Ham.

The announcement generated a huge reaction particularly from Afrobeats lovers and the Nigerian community at large; also from the singer, Odumodublvck himself.

However, Daniel Regha had a contrary opinion, condemning the football club for using the song with claims of it having negative lyrics.

Unknown to the Twitter critic, the lyric had already been modified and cleaned up to suit the purpose of the announcement of Declan Rice to the football club.

In a tweet, Regha wrote, “Arsenal shouldn’t have used Odumodu’s music to announce their player; The song references Declan Rice but it also has a negative connotation cos the lyrics promote violent behavior. The club should’ve made a simple announcement or use a song with positive msg instead. No offense.”

The tweet, however, generated a wave of reactions condemning the Twitter critic for spiting the progress of Odumodublvck.
